The AmpregTM 3X Series replaces Gurit’s legacy range of wet lamination systems for the manufacture of large composite structures in the marine, wind and construction industries. The comprehensive AmpregTM 3X Series portfolio includes a unique range of low toxicity and miscibility curing agents that can be used in conjunction with the following resins:
- AmpregTM 30, low viscosity resin: replaces Ampreg 21
- AmpregTM 31, run-off resistant resin: replaces Ampreg 22
- AmpregTM 36, premium Performance Resin: replaces Ampreg 26
Other ancillary products such as Thixotropic Pregel Resin and High Tg Hardener are also available!
FOCUS: HEALTH AND SAFETY
The award-winning AmpregTM 3X Series laminating system has been redesigned to ensure user health and safety through careful selection of base chemicals. The new low toxicity resin matrix is CMR, SVHC and AEP free* and the hardeners are classified as environmentally friendly.
Our manufacturer, Gurit, carefully selects the chemicals used in formulations to ensure the lowest possible risk of future reclassification — product safety and end-user health and safety are paramount. This approach is part of Gurit’s philosophy. As a responsible and sustainable supplier, we want to support, protect and warn our customers of potential changes.
Ampreg-3x with standard light reflection technology
The AmpregTM 3X series is now available with LRT (Light Reflective Technology) as standard. Gurit’s Light Reflective Technology (LRT) is an additive that helps to make contamination from hazardous chemicals visible in the workplace and on the processor’s clothing. Gurit AmpregTM Series 3X laminating systems are the first production series from Gurit to feature this new technology as standard. This additive can be incorporated into the matrix of resins in all of our laminating and bonding systems without altering their composition or handling properties or the performance characteristics of the cured resin.
With this new process, resin droplets of less than 1 mm are detectable. This makes contamination with epoxy resin, previously invisible to the naked eye, easily detectable on the user’s skin as well as on equipment, doorknobs and similar locations. Thus, contamination with resins can be easily removed from the skin, contributing to a lower risk of skin contact with uncured resins, as well as a lower incidence of skin irritation caused to users.
